Overlook the indulgence of a rap verse contributed by their bodyguard and this is an almost perfectly constructed pop song. Allegedly inspired by Prince, Disney's adorable little cash registers sing about their infatuation "High heels, red dress/ All by yourself/ Gotta catch my breath!" in credible R&B falsetto over power guitar chords. The production is door-in-the-face obvious (there's a boiling kettle at the open to make sure we get that they're burnin' up) but edginess is not the point; sweetness is, and the Jonases achieve it with irresistible harmonies and exuberance.
